matlab.io.fits.setHCompScale

Set scale parameter for HCOMPRESS algorithm

Syntax

setHCompScale(fptr,scale)

Description

setHCompScale(fptr,scale) sets the scale parameter to be used with the HCOMPRESS compression algorithm. Setting the scale parameter causes the algorithm to operate in lossy mode.

This function corresponds to the fits_set_hcomp_scale function in the CFITSIO library C API.

Examples

import matlab.io.*
data = 50*ones(256,512,'double') + 10 * rand([256 512]);
fptr = fits.createFile('myfile.fits');
fits.setCompressionType(fptr,'HCOMPRESS_1');
fits.setHCompScale(fptr,2.5);
fits.createImg(fptr,'double_img',[256 512]);
fits.writeImg(fptr,data);
fits.closeFile(fptr);
fitsdisp('myfile.fits','mode','full');
